The step inn is by far the best breakfast in northern Michigan! The Main Streeter I'd highly recommend any time I come back home I always come back here! Better than IHOP

The Step Inn is the typical hometown restaurant where the locals go for good food, good service and good company at reasonable prices. Besides breakfast, the menu also includes many lunch and dinner selections, I've only had breakfast, but have never had a bad meal.
